Great food tour in Bologna

Today we have been on a great food tour in the Bologna area. We have seen how the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and Aceto balsamico tradizionale di Modena is made and we have been to a local vineyard for a great lunch. Thanks to Alessandro for all the information – see http://www.italiandays.it for more info – and by the way, we also used the opportunity to buy some stuff Winking smile

Enjoying an aperitivo in Bologna

A bright orange spritz

We got reminded about an Italian word today

Panna means whipped cream of course. Not exactly what Nikki had in mind :-)

Looking for perfect espresso cups

And at a restaurant in Bologna they used cups from Figgjo, a town located about 20 minutes outside Stavanger. How ironic is that ;-)

Packing for Bologna

But I guess I have to leave some room in case I want to buy some Parmesan cheese or something similar ;-)
